Hey everyone. I recently got my 2004 rmz250 back up and running however I’m having an issue with the bike bogging when I go over rough bumps, or popping up the front tire. If I’m riding on flat land the bike runs perfect with no issues. When the bike bogs over bumps it feels like a lean bog, engine isn’t firing. Thinking float height maybe? Although the float height seemed fine when I reassembled the bike but I did not look too closely. Any ideas would be appreciated! Thanks
Hey guys i have a 2009 ktm 530 exc, bike has 7500 miles and 190 hours, bike is often hard to start and sometimes starts on first kick?? wont start with electric start. It gets really hard to start almost impossible when warm, and during full throttle bike bogs really bad, also headlights and tail lights wont work. I checked the spark plugs connections and spark plug gap all is fine. Carb was cleaned nothing is dirty. Bike gets 13.8v on battery when running. I have no idea whats wrong it was running well not long ago
Hi All, My sons NEW 2018 KTM 50 SX has an issue in muddy or wet conditions. If he rides through a fairly deep puddle or is riding in muddy conditions the bike will eventually stall and then when trying to start it again I can usually get it started and it will run at lower RPM's but as soon as I try to give it gas and go to higher RPM's the bike will bog down and stall. Sometimes it will not start at all. If I let the bike sit for 20 minutes, it will start up and rip again without any issues. I assumed that coil or coil wires or spark plug wires were getting wet and and causing this BUT I have not been able to duplicate the failure wetting the bike with hose at home. It has me completely baffled. If the carb is clogging up somehow or airways etc. I can't figure out where or why it is OK after 20 minutes and why I cannot duplicate the issue. The bike is not getting hot, and it has happened just going through a deep puddle (Up to foot pegs at most) but splashing the bike. Anyone been through this? Any ideas on what it might be. Prior to having this bike, we had the mini. That was a nightmare with coil and stator issues and overheating. Other then this issue, this bike rips. Its been much better.
I have a 1985 XR600r, I rebuilt the dual Carbs putting stock size main jets in, put a new XR foam air filter in it, new plug, set intake and exhaust valves to stock setting in service manual. The bike starts up and revs great. My issue is whenever I hammer the throttle very fast it tends to bog down and die. I didn’t notice any leaks in my air intake boots. I’m totally stumped, I don’t know if it could be a float measurement, ignition, different jets. Anything would help. Im going to be putting on a supertrapp muffler and new bigger jets in the next couple weeks.
